when I saw what this weeks challenge was all about on the Stampotique Designers Blog I couldn't wait to take part!! the amazingly talented Corrie is the hostess this week and she challenges us to use paint in our background. .....Well.... my mind went to one of my favourite artists...JACKSON POLLOCK. He is famous for his abstract art which is basically splattering paint onto canvas, I know this sounds just like childs play, but to balance it takes a good eye, anyway , I adore his work, and one of his favourite quotes, which I may use in the future is.... " Every good artist paints what he is" !!!!!! .. well, I tell you what I am....too careful, scared of mistakes, need perfection!!!! so when I see Pollock's work, I just wish I was that free, it must be an amazing feeling. I have to say though that when I was creating this background, I had a ball.... until I looked up and saw my beautiful wallpaper, black with silver chandaliers on...AND LOTS OF COLOURED SPLATTERS!!!! gulp!!!

This week over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge, Kathi Rerek is the hostess and has chosen Punny/or Funny projects......and to take a quote from the blog page...."her challenge has us hitting our funny bone"!!!!! well.....that gave me my idea for this punny kinda quote.I have used the incredibly cute HUNK by Stampotique, but I cut his arm off and repositioned it so that he is showing his "humerus" (funny bone)..LOL.

My oh my how the weeks fly by!! we are now two weeks into our monthly Hambo Hoedown challenge, and this months challenge is all about making any kind of creation and incorporating your newly acquired stash, if you are anything like me, I am always "acquiring" new stuff!!!!! I don't know how my craft room hasn't dropped down into my kitchen yet!!!! Yikes!! and it doesn't help with internet shopping, it is all just too easy and readily available at the touch of a button,...good thing for me, bad thing for my credit card. So anyway, my newest bit of stash is the Memory Box Florina stencil, I just laid it on my cardstock and spritzed it with orange and yellow dylusions sprays and splattered with the lime green. I have added the cute little ROLLER BUNNY rubber stamp from Hambo Stamps

This week, over at the Stampotique Designers Challenge blogspot, the fabulous Kaz is challenging you to make a bright n cheery card to help to cheer us up in the dim days of January, I have some new neon fabric paints....and you dont get much brighter than neon!!! so I used them to make the splatters of colour on my card, they take much longer to dry than ordinary paint and are much thicker, but you can still use them on a good weight cardstock. I have used the LITTLE HOO HOO stampotique image, I coloured him in 4 times before he didn't fade into the background!!! first pink, then lavender, then orange, then I just went over him with the pink neon paint which made the orange just pop a bit more, the little owl has glitter on him... but you cannot tell on the photo.
